The Senate

> Sen. Sherrod Brown was on the Rachel Maddow show last night.  Sen. Sherrod Brown, who has made a career of working for the middle class of Ohio, discussed the fact that right wing PACs are trying to buy the U.S. Senate seat in Ohio. With over $18 million coming from the likes of Karl Rove, FreedomWorks, Americans for (their own) Prosperity, etc., Sen. Sherrod Brown is being attacked and disrespected from groups that want to put their Republican puppet, Josh Mandel, in the Senate. 

> What is Republican Scott Brown's problem?  Why does he continue to say disparaging things about Elizabeth Warren? An article at USA Today shows that Scott Brown has attacked Elizabeth Warren over her heritage:

....The issue of Warren's heritage roiled the Massachusetts race this summer. Warren, a Harvard law professor, said she knew her mother was part Cherokee and part Delaware Indian. She acknowledged she let people know about her heritage when she filled out forms for a national law school directory, and later gave the information to her employers at the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard. 

Brown raised the issue in their debate last week, saying Warren "checked the box claiming she was Native American, and clearly she is not." 

What make Scott Brown think that Elizabeth Warren doesn't have Native American heritage? What does he mean that "...clearly she is not..." in his remarks? Can he prove she does not? I was not aware that Scott Brown had done a DNA test on Elizabeth Warren. Is it possible that Scott Brown just doesn't like smart, powerful women?

When one first looks at Scott Brown, you don't automatically notice that he is an arrogant putz.
